about the program
“There’s something different about MNU teachers,” is something we hear a lot about our graduates. We think it’s equal parts preparation and quality students! You’ll love opportunities like international student teaching, networking through Educators Rising, and dynamic field experiences prior to student teaching.
At MNU, we intentionally integrate faith into the classroom and it could not be more important than in a program like education where graduates impact young lives and our country's future.
Our students have access to the best teacher mentors in the field. Through our Clinical Mentoring Team (CMT)—a teaching excellence team—we provide cooperating teachers who have both amazing classroom expertise and coaching abilities.
While you’re here, you can join the Educators Rising program, for great networking opportunities as well as training and preparation for the job search. Based on your academic achievements, you can also participate in our chapters of the Gamma Chi and Pi Lambda Theta honor societies. And students of color interested in becoming teachers can be considered for our RISE program. Through RISE [Reach, Inspire, Support future Educators] talented students of color are introduced to prospective employers in the field of education for the purpose of clinical placements and mentorship.

Developed specifically for Traditional Undergraduate Students, MNU launched a new schedule in 2020. Semester-long courses are now held on Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday for 75 minutes each.
As an MNU student, you’ll encounter not only academic growth and career preparation but you’ll also transform through spiritual growth and time spent in service and mission. We think that’s a
recipe for success in today’s global world.
